the proposal on the fiscal cliff has embarrassed the speaker, but the speaker's failure means a solution to the fiscal cliff is, if they're going to be one, now resting squarely upon president obama. arsine to be vacationing president alone cannot propose legislation that wins majority support in both the house and senate, and the decision to go over the fiscal cliff now depends on his ability to successfully negotiate and to forge a compromise that appeals to both republicans and the far left in mr. obama's party. the president met with senate majority leader harry reid this afternoon and talked with speaker boehner to begin anew that effort to reach compromise. >> averting this middle-class tax hike is not a democratic responsibility or republican responsibility. with their foes the american people have determined that governing is a shared responsibility between both parties in this congress laws can only pass with support from democrats and republicans, and that means nobody gets 100 percent of what they want. lou: there are only ten days remaining to the fiscal cliff. president obam

if the country were to go over the fiscal cliff. the white house feels they are in a strong position right now, in part because of the president winning re-election, he ran on the platform of increasing taxes on the wealthier americans. there's a sense that if they go over the cliff, the republicans would get the brunt of it. >> did this just get more complex after plan-b failed? if it did get more complex, how will it be handled by the white house and speaker boehner? >> it got more complex for republicans. they passed a one side, quick fix. and they could not get a majority of republicans to support that. the big conclusion being, that democrats, and maybe even a majority of democrats would have to be the ones that pass any legislation coming from the house. so that weakened republicans leverage in this debate. and that was the biggest reaction from plan-b, and it's why the battleground now moves to the senate and we are not probably going to see negotiations direct negotiations between house speaker john boehner and the white house. we are going to see the thing move to the senate first. >>
